What is Group Health Insurance?

Group health coverage simply refers to a single plan, issued to a group belonging to a common organization that covers all appropriate employees and sometimes their dependents as well. The employer decides a premium price based on the risk factors combining the entire group. By offering corporate health insurance, an employer tends to help its employees for their medical needs.  In India, being an endemic phenomenon, every single organization emphasizes on including medical insurance as a part and parcel of its employees’ benefits.

Why You Should Buy Group Health Insurance

Group Health Insurance

Helps in Retaining Talent: Everyone at the time of switching or seeking a new job tends to consider the benefits being provided by the employers health insurance being the most preferred option an employee can look for. At the time of switching, employees do compare all that they were offered by the previous organization and all that is being given by the new one.

Boosts Productivity: With a group health insurance plan, an employee thinks that the employer is taking care of their health along with the family. This in turn offers mental peace which further leads to increased productivity. Overall, it benefits the employer substantially.

Added Health Coverage: Corporate health insurance works as an additional health coverage if the insured has an individual health plan already. This way, one can enjoy health coverage in an extended manner.

Ensures Job Satisfaction: Medical insurance plan offered by an organization ensures job satisfaction of the employees. This encourages the employees to stay with the organization for a longer period. They feel satisfied with the benefits that are being offered by the employer which retains them for a long time.

Helps in Becoming ‘Employee Oriented Company’: Under group health insurance, health benefits are being offered to the employees’ families as well. This way an employer can win the trust of his/her employees as an ‘employee oriented company’ and achieve its employment goals.

Your Rescuer During Medical Emergencies: Similar to other health insurance plans, group health insurance also provides an individual with the desired financial assistance in case of a medical emergency. One single hospitalization is enough to wipe away the entire life savings of a middle class family. With health insurance, one is neither over-burdened financially nor does one have to compromise on the quality of medical care.

Can Ensure Employees’ Loyalty: By seeing the employers giving priorities to respective employees, it urges them to adopt an attitude of showing loyalty towards the employer. This ensures a workplace that comprises loyal manpower.
